it tuns with elevated privileges...

So.. we can't trust programs that run with elevated privs to check files such as (shock) network access, (horror) upload data, and (gasp) receive OTA updates. Based on this reasoning, and the current rash of Govt.s worldwide giving themselves super-dooper-snooper data-demanding capabilities, do all nations now need their own brand of AV?

Or is it finally the year of the VT100 desktop(TM) ?
